June - July Flooding 2024

On June 23, 2024, the majority of boats were removed (lake level at 639') from the LAX Sailing Club in anticipation of minor flooding of Lake Onalaska. Multiple items were moved to higher ground or tied down. On June 27, an inspection tour with Jim Shugue and his pontoon boat, revealed that all boats were secure, including four lasers stored atop the picnic tables in the shelter (lake level at 641.5').  We also have photos as the water went higher. See more photos...

We are monitoring the water levels at water.noaa.gov/  Members will be notified with the parking lot is ready for launching boats and a work day to clean up the grounds is planned.
